Capabilities for handling pharmaceutical cargo plays a key role
Emirates SkyCargo has completed 30 years of operations in Singapore.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Emirates SkyCargo has ensured that businesses in Singapore continue to access robust cargo connectivity to both Australasia directly as well as to Europe and the Middle East through Dubai. Currently the carrier operates 15 weekly cargo flights to Singapore.
Ravishankar Mirle, Emirates Vice President Cargo Commercial- Far East and Australasia said: “Singapore occupies a very important position in the economy of South East Asia and is therefore one of our most important cargo stations around our global network.
"Over the years we have transported an important volume of cargo, over 185,000 tonnes just in the five years between 2014 and 2019 and have also marked a number of success stories from the station across all areas of operations – whether it is in loading of unique and outsized cargo or in collaborative working with local stakeholders.
"We owe much of this success to the dedication and hard work invested by our team locally including our Cargo Manager Noryate Abdul Rahman who has been with the Emirates family since Day 1 of operations in Singapore.”
Emirates SkyCargo has been able to successfully transport goods thanks to extensive investment in developing capabilities for handling pharmaceuticals. This has especially been the case during these critical times when the demand for pharmaceuticals remains high due to the impact of Covid-19.
Over the years, Emirates SkyCargo’s Singapore team has also notched a number of achievements in the area of outsized cargo, charter operations and more recently cabin loading of cargo.
